Default 43 y/o newbie to go-carts

Well, how to start? I am a 43 y/o with 2 growing boys, oldest is 3.5 y/o and youngest just turned 2. I have a background in electronics, and health care.. I currently own 1 go-cart that was given to me in almost new condition by my older brother, who has had issues with it from the day he purchased it... I find myself drawn to fix this machine, "Carter mini talon with friction disc drive", and hopefully improve upon the somewhat iffy design... So here I am... Looking for a useful site to hopefully guide me in the right direction.. Thank you in advance for any help provided..

Welcome to the forums!
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.
